Just a few cards I made this weekend using some of my old stamps...
This first one is for Just Us Girls #49 for the sketch and Papertake Weekly's Just The One challenge. You could interpret this one how you wanted, but I chose to use one colour of varying shades and of course I chose pink! I thought I would also enter this for the In Love With Stamping colour challenge for this month to use tone on tone colours.
Stamps: Signature Greetings, Background Basics: Botanicals, Beautiful Blooms II all from PTI
Papers: Melon Mambo cs & DSP, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette
Inks: Melon Mambo, Pretty in PInk
Accessories: Pink Pirouette ribbon, Tilda's Lace Border Die, Tilda's Dragonfly Die, Pink gems from Hobbycraft (these suck btw - the adhesive stays on the acetate sheet rather than coming off with the gem!)
My next card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #46 to use Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade. I still don't have the new in colour inks - they will be arriving soon so I improvised yet again by cutting out the different layers on my flower in the colours I needed! I also used old Mojo #41 for the layout - still making my way slowly through all these old ones!
Stamps: Playful Petals, Sweet Birthday both from SU
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP
Inks: Wild Wasabi, Basic Gray, Ruby Red marker, Apricot Appeal marker
Accessories: Wild Wasabi ribbon, White brads from stash, Word Window Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
My next card is for In Love With Stamping's August Inspiration Challenge. I took 2 colours from each of the four squares and used them to create this pretty butterfly card!
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly from SU
Papers: Taken With Teal, Regal Rose, Summer Sun, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Rich Razzleberry cs & DSP, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White!
Inks: Only Orange, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose
Accessories: Butterfly Punch, Word Window Punch, Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon
My last card for this post is another In Love With Stamping Challenge - September's technique challenge to use masking. I used Mojo #154 for the layout, Free For All #28 to use birds with a colour you don't normally use, which is my Really Rust and for CC105 to use Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Old Olive, So Saffron and Cool Caribbean, which I subbed with Soft Sky. And I attempted to do a bit of ribbon ruffling and love how this turned out!
Stamps: Thank You Kindly, My Sweet Pea both from SU
Papers: Chocoalte Chip, Really Rust, Whisper White, So Saffron DSP
Inks: So Saffron, Soft Sky, Old Olive ink and marker, Chocolate Chip marker, Really Rust marker
Accessories: Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Square Nestabilities
Well that's all for this post today folks! I've also done some cards with some new stamps here if you want a look.
